There are three landowner positions on the Board, and two by popular election. All landowner elections are conducted at the November Board meeting, and popular elections are coordinated by the Highlands County Board of Elections. Qualifying for the popular election seats is normally in the month of June when the seat is available. Further information on qualifying for an elected seat can be secured at the County Board of Elections.
Each person who decides to appeal any decision made by the Board with respect to any matter considered at the meeting is advised that that person may need to ensure that a verbatim record of the proceedings is made, including the testimony and evidence upon which such appeal is to be based.
